Fast forward a few years to when I met my husband (GamingDaddyof2), who happens to be a bigger gamer than anyone I’ve met previously, and our household now has so many games consoles that our TV doesn’t have enough HDMI ports to accommodate them all. With consoles such as the Playstation 4 leading the way in gaming it is crazy to see the difference thirty years has made. My girls are growing up in an age surrounded by technology but I wonder how they will look back on these gaming experiences when they are older and have children of their own.
Gaming is not all about the consoles now though and with the emergence of smart phones and tablets games are now becoming apps which allow people to play on the move. One of my brother-in-law’s is an avid users of these devices, whether he’s on the sofa at home with his tablet or in the pub with his mobile, he’s always connected and playing one of the many gambling games available with his current favourite being cleopatra-slot.co.uk. He is not the only person in the family who enjoys these adult games and my mother in law has been knows to play free bingo at gamevillage.com too.
It is not just the gambling apps or websites that are popular in this day and age with Candy Crush being played by most adults I know and the kids going made for websites such as Moshi Monsters, Club Penguin and the latest craze ‘Here Be Monsters’, which is a Facebook game that has been adapted to the iPad. It seems that gaming has become a huge part of our lives no matter how old we are and I can only imagine what the next thirty years will bring us.
